A national ban on PFAS has been rejected by a majority in the Danish Parliament

-

The proposal, made by Enhedslisten and supported by SF, Alternativet, Radikale Venstre, Konservative, Nye Borgerlige and DF, didn’t have a majority as the government, along with the Liberal Alliance and Danmarksdemokraterne voted against it. 

  • The government voted against because PFAS are “cross-border” and there should be a decision at a European level. Until that happens, they are open towards limiting the use of PFAS by banning it in some areas. 

  • PFAS is a collective term for 12,000 per and polyfluorinated chemicals.
